USD/CHF, a 4-hour chart of which is shown, has turned up as of Monday (7/12/2010) after failing to breakdown significantly below key support in the 1.0500 price region late last week. This bullish turn has broken out above a steep downtrend resistance line extending from a mid-June high, and comes on the heels of substantial bearishness that has prevailed since early June.
